Recommend an MST HUB to connect three displays to Intel NUC8I7BEH

Hello,

I am planning to buy a NUC8I7BEH in the future, my only question would be that, how can I connect three Full HD displays to that?

I have a DELL U2211H, a P2214H and a P2217H.

For the P2214H the manual says:

“*Support DP1.2 (CORE) specification. Excludes High Bit Rate 2 (HBR2), Fast AUX
transaction, Multi-stream transport (MST), 3D stereo transport, HBR Audio (or high data
rate audio)”

For the P2217H it does not say anything about the exclusion of MST, only that it has a DP1.2 port.

I do not ha DP Out on any of these displays, therefore daisy chaining is not possible.

Can I use an MST Hub in this case?

The “Excludes […] Multi-stream transport (MST)” does not really fill my heart with warmth and I am afraid because of the DP1.1a on the U2211H there will only be mirrored image for one of my displays.

What would you recommend?

Thanks!

Hello Bozsikarmand,

Thank you for your question.

currently there are only two solutions available. the CSV-1477 this is an adapter that works via the USB-A connection on your NUC device. you would need two of this product to connect all 3 displays.

the other solution is the CSV-3242HDA which would not utilize your display-ports but will use your VGA, DVI and HDMI all three of these ports are supported on your displays. on Club3D instagram “@Club_3d” account you can see a video how this Dockingstation is used for multiple displays

unfortunately MST is not supported by your Dell U2211H. so a conventional MST will not work

Kind regards
